Students in Deb Jansky's Textiles class work on removing stains in the annual stain removal lab on April 25th. One "tool" that students were amazed at was the iconic Fels Naptha soap as a satin remover. A much lower cost alternative to commercially marketed stain sticks!

Historical Fashion Trivia AND Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Trend:
Here is a good example of how often, history keeps recycling silhouettes and styles. Back in the 1820's-1830's, sleeves reached their most ridiculous dimensions, forming huge puffs and wings (see picture)...shoulders virtually disappeared until the 1840's. The second photo is from the Thom Browne Resort 2014 collection which shows a more contemporary version of the extreme sleeve. At least with the latter, one can actually get through today's average 30" doorways.

Historical Fashion Trivia:
In 1937, Dr. Wallace Hume Carothers created nylon. Little did he suspect that on May 15, 1940 when the first nylon stockings went on sale they would be a smash hit across the U.S. in department stores with 780,000 pairs being sold the first day! Who would have thought that a chemist would be the father of a major classic fashion item?

Historical Fashion Trivia:
In the Middle Ages when a young man married, he gave the bride's father one of his gloves as a symbol that he would take care of his new bride "single-handedly".

Historical Fashion Tidbit:
The origin of denim was in Nîmes, France, where a fabric called "serge de Nîmes" was developed. It was a coarse, twilled fabric made of cotton, which was very strong and durable. The sails of the Niña, Pinta, and Santa María were made from this fabric. A version for trousers was later developed and called "denim".

It was Queen Elizabeth I, when having nowhere to put her 3000 dresses, designed a special room with a separate hook for each dress and so the closet was born.

Color Test - Online Color Challenge | X-Rite

Ever wonder why you have trouble matching colors? You just may have a real color deficiency. Or on the other hand, you may have great visual color accuity. A fun way to find out is to take a quick online assessment created by xrite.com and Pantone. Take the Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test and see just how good you are at seeing nuances in color.
